Detroit, MI (February 17, 2022) - Emergency personnel were on the scene of a bus and semi-truck accident in Detroit on the morning of Thursday, February 17. The wreck was reported to officials in the area who promptly responded to the scene. 

The wreck was reported on I-75 north at Schaefer in Wayne County. The Bolt Bus involved in the collision is owned by Greyhound, according to reports. 

Officials said that a semi was passing the bus before losing control. The truck then hit the bus. One passenger was transported to a local hospital with injuries. Emergency medical treatment evaluated and cleared all other passengers on the bus at the time of the wreck. 

Authorities in Detroit continue to investigate the details of the wreck. Nothing further has been reported at this time. 

We hope for the full recovery of the injured victim. 

Truck Accidents in Michigan

Detroit, MI - Semi-Truck & Bus Collide on I-75 at Schaefer

Truck accidents are some of the most devastating types of traffic accidents. Being involved in a crash with a commercial truck can be terrifying. Semi-trucks are about 20 times heavier than the average passenger vehicle, making them the giants of the road. Usually, those who sustain injuries in truck accidents are more severely injured than those who are hurt in regular traffic accidents. 

Unfortunately, traffic collisions in the Wolverine State happen hundreds of times per day. Yearly, the state sees around 300,000 traffic accidents. Over 70,000 people are hurt in these wrecks annually, and more than 1,000 are killed. Sustaining injuries in a collision can leave a devastating mark on a person’s life. If you or someone you love has recently been hurt in a wreck, you are painstakingly aware of the consequences that often follow–physical, emotional, and financial. 

You may have had to spend a lot of time recovering in the hospital, which means you may have been forced out of work. This can result in stress and anxiety, wondering how you are going to cover the costs associated with your crash and resulting injuries. A personal injury attorney in Michigan may be able to help you figure out how to collect financial compensation for your injuries and losses. Compensation can help cover some or all of the costs associated with your wreck.

Detroit Truck Accident Attorneys

Across the United States, currently, there are more than 11 million trucks actively operating, many with overworked and fatigued drivers carrying hazardous loads. In 2016, approximately 475,000 large truck collisions were reported in the United States. Human error was the leading cause of these wrecks, accounting for more than 90% of them.

The lawyers at the Michigan Legal Center firmly believe that paying for injuries caused by driver negligence is out of the question.
